9LY1JM-Sierra-Leone-DXpedition de WB9LUR /

This is a very experienced group of operators with lot's of DXpedition savy. At ninety six on ClubLog's "most wanted" list, the pileups will be big! Many ops will be hoping for an ATNO and / or band fills.

9LY1JM plans to be active on all bands 160 through 10 meters on CW, SSB, RTTY and digital modes. They have worked out an "operational" plan, including special notes for JA ops and FT8 QSO's that you can review here.

For you island hunters this will be IOTA AF-037 located in Madienhead locator grid square IJ38jc.

STAY TUNED! More 9LY1JM NEWS and updates coming very soon...
